Baptism, the first and fundamental sacrament and the gate to the other sacraments, is the purifying and sanctifying sacrament of rebirth. It is the means by which its recipients are incorporated into the church in a sacramental bond of unity.

The Sacrament of Baptism, the first of the three sacraments of initiation, is also the first of the seven sacraments in the Catholic Church. It removes the guilt and effects of Original Sin and incorporates the baptized into the Church, the Mystical Body of Christ on earth.

Please note :  There are NO PRIVATE Baptisms.  All Sacraments are public celebrations.

Baptisms will be on Saturdays 12:00 Noon, or during Sunday 10:00 Mass

            There may be more than one child being baptised.
